Mother Charged With Murder Of Kids Found Hanging In Her Basement

Fox News Flash top headlines for December 2 are here.

During Monday's press conference, Adams said Snyder's Samsung phone remains missing, but is believed to be the device she used to order a dog lead used in the killing of her youngest children - Conner Snyder, 8, and Brinley Snyder, 4.

Snyder didn't enter a plea Monday and is being held without bail at the Berks County Jail.

Lisa Snyder, who turns 37 on December 13, told a 911 operator her son had been bullied and "didn't want to go alone". She was arrested at her home.

Snyder was also charged with child endangerment and having sex with a dog, the Allentown Morning Call reported.

The paper quoted Adams as telling reporters, "Eight-year-olds, generally, that I am aware of, do not commit suicide so of course, we had questions nearly immediately".

Investigators in October said Lisa Snyder described finding them in the basement hanging by a cord, possibly a dog leash, from the rafters.

The children were unconscious and in cardiac arrest when they were found, but medics revived them en route to the hospital. "That was not done in this situation". Other alleged searches included "I nearly got away with it best episodes" and "hanging yourself"; the latter search happened on September 22, per court records, and resulted in a visit to a website on the topic.

Snyder told the 911 dispatcher that she found both children hanging but did not have the strength to lift them out of the nooses and went back upstairs to make the call.

According to court records Conner and Brinley were "hanging approximately three feet apart from a single wired cable with plastic coating", Fox 32 reported.

According to police, the mother said she'd returned to their home around 4:30 p.m., finding two dining room chairs tipped over on the floor near her children's bodies.

"Among the many people that were interviewed during this investigation included an occupational therapist who was employed through the Kutztown School District".

Additionally, the station reported that officials said they spoke to numerous school officials, family members and classmates and found no evidence of bullying.
